Designing for the school of tomorrow: Open Innovation Competition

Creative Sustainability students are invited to apply for Climate-KIC Nordic’s Open Innovation Competition: Designing the 17 Sustainable Development Goals for the sustainable school of tomorrow.

The challenge is to find innovative ways to highlight and raise awareness about the SDGs in school environments.

The aim of this call for innovation is to make children more aware of and understand the meaning of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals and how these goals are applicable in the daily life. The call wants to see visual innovations with focus on the visible aspects of the design and targets, especially products/innovations that helps highlighting and presenting the SDGs in a way that:

  • Are appealing to children in different ages from preschool up to age 16
  • Can come at hand for schools and teachers who wants to include aspects of the SDGs and sustainability in their education and various learning environments.

The design should invite children to interact with and come closer to the SDGs, making the goals more graspable, and creating a relationship between the children and the goals. Sustainability is more than a buzzword, and the goals should be explained in ways that children can understand and relate to.

Deadline: 29 October 2018, 12:00 noon CET
